Any fans here of the DS9 young adult series?

Trapped in Time and Cardassian Imps were probably my favorite of the series, especially the later for an appearance by Garak. Are there any fans here?

Re: Any fans here of the DS9 young adult series?

I'm a fan of the DS9 relaunch lit, but I imagine this YA series predates it. I do have the 3 TNG YA books that introduced and played with future NF characters, but I don't recall seeing a DS9 YA series. How many books were there? When did they come out?

Re: Any fans here of the DS9 young adult series?

There are 12 books which came out between 1994 and 1998. 11 of the books follow Jake and Nog having there own adventures, and there is tie into the Day of Honor stuff that focuses on Alexander Rozhenko. I read them as they were coming out, and as a kid at around the age group the novels were targeted at I loved them. Same goes for all three SFA series that came out at the same time. If you don't know about those, there are 14 TNG novels, with 3 focusing on Worf, 2 focusing on Geordi, 2 on Data, 2 on Picard, 1 on Beverly and Data, 1 on Will Riker and Geordi, 1 on Deanna, 1 more on Geordi, and 1 more on Data. There are 3 Voyager SFA novels, focusing on Janeway, and 3 TOS SFA novel, one of these focuses on Spock, the second one then adds McCoy, and the thirds puts the whole Trio together by adding Kirk to the mix.

Yep...my favorite is Prisoners of Peace, by far. John Peel wrote that one.

I really liked Highest Score, which dealt with telepresence years before Enterprise did.

^Well, to be fair, TNG dealt with telepresence in "Interface." And of course the idea goes back to Robert Heinlein's "Waldo" in 1942.

Was that the one that was basically a kids' version of Ender's Game?

Worf and Quark also used something like a telepresence unit in "Looking for Par'mach In All the Wrong Places".
